Hey, he scored two goals that should impress Wings fans.  He actually went to the net on one goal and actually scored on a breakaway on another.  Two things most of our players don't seem capable of doing.  

 

More allstar goals than crosby.  :clap:

Scott actually has a pretty good wrist shot.

If the database had to break down, that was a good time to do it.  I think I'll send the host a thank-you letter.

 

And there's nothing like HFBoards to help you appreciate LGW.  :lol:

Thank goodness.  I don't know how much more I could endure of HFBoards.


 

Me too.  So many rude people on there.

 

I feel your pain, had to read the expert opinions and trades there was like WTF

It's not a secret that many players would rather rest than play in the ASG.  My only point is that yesterday's games looked more physically taxing than prior All star games.  There was no hitting or shot blocking, but there was a lot of end to end action.  I can see the older players not wanting anything to do with that in the future.  

 

They also looked like they had a lot more fun than they have had in recent years. 

 

The key to keeping the game competitive is to have a few younger players like Larkin in the mix. These kids playing with veteran all-stars are gonna show up to play, which in turn gets the older guys going. Larkin was all over the ice last night. That type of thing is infectious.

Great to hear it from his mouth. Especially love how it turned out at the ASG.

#2650870 Players Tribune: John Scott A Guy Like me

What happened should be remembered as what an All-Star game should be.  The fans wrote Scott in, and while some at the NHL didn't like it, what it turned into was a great PR move.  The NHL is going to learn from this mistake and keep the fan vote in as part of the All-Star game.  It also made Scott a household name.  He won't get a multi-million dollar contract to play hockey, but what he will get are opportunities down the road.  He could go into broadcasting or some other job if he gets tired of playing in the minors.  He has charisma and sometimes that is all you need to be successful.  Most people when they thought of John Scott before was something like what you would see in the movie "Goon".  A brainless idiot that just loves to beat the crap out of people.  Here was a guy that obviously wasn't top tier NHL talent, but he loves the game and it shows.

Love John Scott getting the MVP. A great up yours to the league office. (I did sort of predict the MVP in another read, but I don't think he goals he got were gimmes though.)

Anyone think Helm could beat Larkin's new record?

I think it would be close.
Now that Larkin holds the record though, I could see them racing in practice at some point. (Hopefully they do, and hopefully they record it and put it on a new episode of wingspan, or show it during pre-game)

People come out of the woodwork with petty excuses and stipulations whenever any record is broken. 

 

Remember the Wings' home win streak from, what was it, 2012?  It seemed like new people appeared with new reasons why they didn't break the record or weren't going to or whatever with each passing day.

Dylan Larkin holds the new record. End of story. Just have to accept it and move on.
